TBG Student Assembly Solutions
This is an engaging, motivating assembly that will change their thinking along with providing inspiration and encouragement that they matter and people care about them. They can make a difference in the world, they just need to believe it. They also must be empowered knowing that they don’t have to impress that guy or girl with a nude photo.
Follow up then needs to be in place to reinforce the principles from the assembly throughout the year. Just like wearing a set of braces straightens teeth over time, revisiting the topic throughout the year will ensure change.
This social media-oriented, cutting-edge world has created problems and pains that we have never had to deal with in previous generations. We must respond with cutting-edge, dynamic solutions to mitigate our risk associated with these problems.
In order for this training to be effective, we recommend a top-down approach. Train your staff and teachers first on these topics and then present the same information to your students in an engaging format that will change their thinking, change their behavior, and manage their risk.
